Child DanceSport (Saturday 1pm)
This is a class for children that want to participate in dance competitions, known as DanceSport. In this group dance class your child will learn simple routines of International Ballroom and Latin dances such as Waltz, Quickstep, Rumba and ChaCha. This a very fun and energetic class that requires stamina and focus. We will be specifically focusing on preparation for competitions.
Ballroom and Latin dancing includes many different dances. In general they can be divided into two categories: Ballroom (also called Standard) and Latin.
Ballroom dances include Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz and Quickstep. Those are progressive, elegant dances that are danced around Ballroom.
For Latin dances (this is International Style Latin-American) we have also five dances which are ChaCha, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble and Jive. These dances are more stationary and energetic.
In this class children will learn not only how to dance, but also how to compete. There are many competitions around the Nation that vary in size and levels. Children will learn what is expected from DanceSport Athletes, how competitions are organized and run. This information will give them competitive advantage when attneding those competitions.
DanceSport Club students regularly participate in local, regional and National DanceSport competitions. Talk to us if you would like your child to get involved in DanceSport.
